KaizenOps Overview


Focusing on our strengths, we primarily support low volume/high mix manufacturing organizations. We specialize manual manufacturing and assembly operations of all types in the following areas: Standard Work (productivity improvement), Quick Changeover (setup reduction), 6S (standardization and organization), 3P (production preparation process), and are passionate about helping organizations begin their lean journey.

KaizenOps was founded by Mack Story in 2008 for Lean Manufacturing Consulting with a focus on continuous improvement and respect for the people. KaizenOps’ John Maxwell Certified Leadership speakers, coaches, & trainers provide Leadership Solutions for people in any organization & Lean Manufacturing Solutions for all manufacturing operations. We cater to people, not companies.

Respect for the people is the foundation of all organizational improvement. At KaizenOps, the principles taught by Dr. Stephen R. Covey & Dr. John C. Maxwell are the foundation for everything we do. We apply these principles, not only in our professional lives, but also in our personal lives by talking it, living it, modeling it, and teaching it everyday! Our goal is to be better tomorrow than we are today.

If a company always does what it has always done, will it always get what it always got?

Most often, the answer we hear is, “Yes.” However, if the competition is not doing what it has always done and has embraced Leadership & Lean Principles, they are more likely to get “more” based on improved Safety, Quality, Delivery, Cost, & Morale. The result: Those doing what they’ve always done, get “less!”

Today, companies are moving either forward or backward. They are never static! As Dr. Stephen R. Covey says in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, “Nothing fails like success.”

KaizenOps will accept the responsibility of helping you and your team move beyond changing what is easy, so that we can change what is necessary to ensure you continue to move forward.
